70% ASUS PL80J notebook
Source: Good Gear Guide English

All up, the PL80J is a light, nice-looking notebook with good build quality and plenty of features. Security features, such as the fingerprint reader, make it a decent choice for business users in addition to home users. We're not fans of the Optimus technology in this notebook though: we don't think the NVIDIA graphics adapter provides enough of a performance boost compared to the integrated Intel graphics.

Asus reviews


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

NVIDIA GeForce 310M: The GeForce 310M is the successor of the GeFore G210M and based on the same chip with very similar clock rates (shader speed +30MHz to 1530MHz).

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i5:

520UM:

The Core i5-520UM is a power efficient ultra low voltage processor for laptops. Using Turbo Boost it can be clocked with up to 1.86 GHz. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics with 166-500 MHz) and a DDR3-800 memory controller are also included in the package. Compared to the Core i7-620UM, the 520UM offers less Level 3 Cache and a slower Turbo Boost clock rate.

430UM:

The Core i5-430UM is a power efficient ultra low voltage processor for laptops. Using Turbo Boost it can be clocked with up to 1.7 GHz. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. AES, VT-d and Trusted Execution are deactivated for the 430UM. An integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics with 166-500 MHz) and a DDR3-800 memory controller are also included in the package.


14.0: 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2 kg:

These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

2.1 kg:

These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


76.5%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
